    1. That's how you write a damn book.Holy shit.I don't usually read YA, but this was recommended, and I tend to make exceptions for recs. i am SO glad I did! It was freaking beautiful! I so completely lived in Ridge's heart through this entire story, and I loved it so, so much. I cry over books all the time, but this one made me ugly cry all over my dog (who is used to it) and made my husband ask if Amy Lane had a new book out (smartass). So, pretty much for the first time ever, I'm adding a YA auth [...]

    3. A must read for the M/M Young Adult fan! Dreamy sigh. I absolutely 5-star loved it!Ridge McCoy is a 16-year-old who recently lost his father in a plane crash. He’s a shell of the person he once was. His mom is distant, his brother hates him, and he’s convinced his girlfriend is only staying with him for appearances. She can’t be the girl who broke up with the guy who’s still grieving the loss of his father.He’s escaping it all by heading to Bear Creek for a summer-long basketball camp. [...]

    4. had trouble with ridge's characterization. so much that i found spending time in his head to be largely unfun and kinda alienating.i can't decide whether it's because of YA tropes i don't particularly admire, or because of him.on the whole a kind of frustrating experience for me, what with distinctly female-gazey perspectives on some things, and some niggles plot-wiseme good scenes, thougho stars, as my friend expy says, For It Was Okay.

    5. I had a bad streak before reading this book and was looking for something awesome to save the day. I found this book instead.With that, Micah unwraps a stick of blue rock candy and proceeds to seductively pull it in and out of his mouth. I guess he assumes he’s in the clear to practice blow jobs in public with me now. I can’t watch.I loved the first half but in some moment in the way it lost heart. It’s not that it goes from bad to worse, it’s just I expected it to go from good to better [...]

    6. I 5683 this book!It wasn't as angsty and sad as I expected. This book had heart and soul and it just touched me so many times. THIS is how you do YA- no melodrama, no perfect people, no slut shaming or woman hating. Even the absentee parent thing worked in this book.Ridge's dad died a year ago in a plane crash, and he's just been existing since then. His mom and his brother have both pulled away from him, and he thinks his girlfriend Samantha is only with him because she can't be the girl who du [...]

    7. I loved this! Seriously, what a great, great book!I can't say enough about how I loved Micah and his family. Such a genuinely nice guy who wears his heart on his sleeve, even though he tries his best not to do so. I really like Ridge as well and I can't say enough about Terrence. He wasn't in the story a whole heck of a lot, but when he was, he was a really great friend to Ridge. I thought he gave some great advice and I really liked when he would 'mess' with Ridge by asking questions in convers [...]

    8. This was me during a majority of this book:This book was cute and quirky. I just loved this author grew their friendship into a relationship. I was loving it. I was ready to give it 5 stars. And thenWhat happened you ask? Well1. I was heartbroken when I found out that Micah (view spoiler)[HUGE SPOILER!!!!!(view spoiler)[admitted that he had lied about the horses. (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)] I don't know why it hurt me so much. I had to deduct a star for that. It killed it for me a little bit [...]

    9. “I need more time than what you have tonight. It’d seriously take all day just to tell you about one horse, much less ten. You know, I could just show you instead. Give me ten days this summer”Similar to last year’s “New Author Week” event – this year, we were supposed to read books from Debut Author (in M/M) of 2014 – I found myself again struggling to find which author to read. Those debut authors I were interested in, I had read their works. So whom should I pick? I am quite p [...]

    10. One summer.Two boys.Ten carousel horses.OH THE FEELS.This is one of the sweetest, most distinctive m/m romances I’ve read in many moons, and I recommend it to all m/m and YA fans looking for something pleasingly different.FALLING FROM THE SKY hinges on a creative concept, something I always appreciate. Away at basketball camp for the summer, 16-year-old Ridge meets Micah, a Native American boy his age who runs the carousel at the local mall. Micah tells him the 10 carousel horses each have a s [...]

    11. 4.5 StarsI just needed a little more at the ending, and this would have been five stars. The plot was strong, and the character development was excellent. At first, I wasn't sure where things were heading, but the author wove together a nice intricate story of love, loss, and a summer of learning to live again.

    12. This was a slow-building story of a young man on the cusp of adulthood, dealing with past tragedy and current confusion. Ridge lost his father in a plane crash almost a year before the book opens, but he's still coming to terms with that. Planes overhead still startle him into visions of falling from the sky. His mother has been grieving and coping with his younger brother's problems, and not had much time for him. His girlfriend has been distant, shallow and unsupportive. Going off to a basketb [...]

    13. I'm so tired of this whole bi-erasure thing. Micah saying he doesn't want labels, he likes girls, he likes boys but then Ridge asking him : so did you bring a girlfriend home? The answer being no, of course he just thinks oh dude just admit you're gay. I think if he had gotten a girl pregnant, then mayyybe it would have proven he had interest in vaginas too. And then Micah who keeps reapeating after that I'm gay, I'm gay. So yeah, he has been bisexual for a total of 30 seconds apparently. Just d [...]

    14. “And what do you want, McCoy?” Terrence asks. “Really and truly?” “For this summer to never end.”Hold on, folks, this could be a bumpy (and sarcastic and slightly angry because I wasted 2 1/2 hours on this book) ride.First of all, it's always a bad sign when you get kind of leery about a book within the first chapter of that book. I mean, it doesn't help that one of the first comments made about the Native American character isHe nods. "I'm Micah. Youngblood." I was expecting somethi [...]

    15. I've never been much of a YA fan, but there are a few out there that are must reads.is is one of them. The characters, Micah and Ridge, immediately captured my interest and attention and didn't let go until the last word was read. Excellent read.

    16. I have no idea how this book escaped my notice for so long, but holy moly, folks, if you love YA, if you love realistic, meaningful YA books that deal with realistic issues and contain fully formed characters, this is a book for you. Ridge is attending a summer basketball camp, in an effort by his mother to get him out of his what I would call depression and overall melancholy after the death of his father. The camp is held near/on an Indian reservation, and while there, Ridge meets Micah, a boy [...]

    17. 2.5I had some problems with the amateur writing: pacing etc some problems with cultural, ethnic and race references, and some issues with Ridge who was somewhat selfish and self-centred,It's on the higher end of the okayness scale but reading this right after Gives Light did this book no favours.

    19. Books don’t often make me feel the way Falling From The Sky made me feel. Which was 100%, completely, undoubtedly happy. They just don’t. I rarely get all giddy over a book, and smile at the characters because they’re so freaking adorable, and feel everything they’re feeling. It’s just really hard for a book to be able to capture me like that. Which is why Falling From The Sky has cemented itself as one of my new favourite books. Ever.Everything about this book, from the moment I read [...]

    20. This book hit all the right buttons for me. Wonderful characters, a great YA/NA storyline it really was exactly my cuppa tea!Nikki Godwin is not an author I've read before - I liked the sound of this book, stuck it on my TBR list then Heather (thank you!) let me know it was in an deal and was only 77p. This marketing strategy works IMO because I can guarantee I'll be buying more from this author. A book that sounded good but may have taken a while to get to (if your TBR is anything like mine) w [...]

    21. I AM DEAD FROM FEELS, Y'ALL.Seriously. I finished reading this and my mouth literally aches from smiling so hard. I don't think I've shipped a couple quite as hard as I shipped Ridge and Micah.I suck at reviewing things, so pardon me if this is nothing but squees and swoons, because that was basically my reading experience.I have been waiting for this book to come out from the second I heard about it- and not just because I love Nikki's writing, and not just because I love Nikki. Because it's a [...]

    22. So, if you know me, you know I've been raving about this book since I read the blurb on Twitter. Just something about it hooked me and I couldn't wait to get my grubby little hands on it. I remember the author, Nikki, saying, "I hope this book lives up to your expectations."Oh dearie, it surpassed them.Ridge, the MC, hooked me from the beginning. He is such a well-rounded, fully fleshed character. I related to him and I cared about him. I wanted more than anything to see him happy.And oh Micah. [...]

    23. I loved this book. It's a beautifully written YA story involving a boy who is grieving the death of his father in a plane crash who attends a basketball camp for the summer. he falls for a local native american boy, which is a surprise since the basketballer thinks he's straight. I found myself highlighting many envious passages (envious as in, I wish I'd written them!). The sex is off page but the sexual tension up to about 50% is off the charts. I loved both boys and all supporting characters [...]

    24. celebrityreaders.wordpress3 stars -- I will admit I'm a bit torn on this book.  I actually liked quite a bit of it, but I still felt like there was just something lackingke it could have been so much better, you know??  And I keep going back and forth on some of the other things that bugged me.  Like they seriously bugged me, but there's a part of me that can see how characters (especially 17 year old characters) would behave in such a way.I'll start off by saying that I chose to move this b [...]

    25. 5683originially posted here: alwayslostinbooks.wordpressAfter reading Chasing Forever Down and American Girl on Saturn, I’ve been a big Nikki Godwin fan. What can I say? Those two books were so easy to love, especially being stuck in summer vacation with swoon-worthy guys. But with Falling from the Sky, Nikki took a whole different turn. Her voice is still very clear in this one, but the composition feels different somehow. I must admit that I was afraid I wouldn’t like this book, but I actu [...]

    26. I'm pretty sure that nearly everyone is gonna start their review by saying "I 5683 this book" but I can't help it, sue me! I 5683 THIS !!! The first part of the book was pretty slow to me but as it went on it got definitely better, I really enjoyed these characters, both the main ones and the secondary ones, every single one of them holds a special place in my heart (apart from Zach Perry and his gang, ew), I'm amazed by the wonderful characterisation. Ridge is honestly so interesting! I adored [...]

    27. I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to read this LGBT novel in exchange for an honest review—and my excitement was warranted because I enjoyed it from the beginning. Falling from the Sky is a young adult contemporary novel about sixteen-year-old Ridge McCoy and his unforgettable summer trying to live life again after a plane crash kills his father and turns his world upside down.Nikki Godwin spun an unforgettable story about Ridge’s summer away at basketball camp, and how hi [...]

    28. This book was great! I stumbled upon this title in my recommendations and was nicely surprised after I finished reading it. It took me a while to realize that the annoying addition to Ridge's personality was intentional - he was a teenager, after all. (I forget about that so often. Ugh)This book was a sweet, upbeat read. I loved the plot, the idea, the simplicity of everything and the slow build up to the ending. Would recommend to someone looking for a nice, mellow YA M/M Romance book.

    29. 3.5 starsCute, sweet YA book. I found Micah soendearing.It was a good thing that this was told from Ridge's point of view. I think if it would have been told from Micah's it would have made Ridge unlikable in parts of the book. I enjoyed reading this book but an epilogue would have done wonders. If it wasn't for the ending this book would be 4 stars. I really don't care for open endings where 'you can use your mind to get the ending that you want'. This barely qualifies as HFN.

    30. 4.5 stars Beautiful and engaging. Micah was such a sweet, good character. A boy in need of friendship and love and not afraid to go for it. I loved how Ridge didn't really cared for Micah much but once he got to really know him he found himself deeply connected to him. (So did I)What this book is really missing is an epilogue. Yes, I can imagine them reconnecting and finding ways to each other but knowing for "sure" doesn't hurt. That statement alone should tell you how believable this story is. [...]
